A Mustard Seed

I meet with a group of ladies once a week. It is a depression support group. We are a tight knit bunch from all walks of life and we meet to help keep each other in check. It's a really good thing.

So many issues came out of our meeting yesterday. Issues that didn't necessarily pertain to each of us but issues about the ones we love. Talk about having faith come in.

Faith that tests at the hospital will come out with positive results, faith that traveling constantly will bring a husband home safely each week, faith that we won't let the negative side of things (aka Satan) get hold of us and move us down the path of depression. Faith that we will get over our physical ailments and enjoy life to the fullest.

Isn't that the hardest thing to do? To have faith when things look grim. Sometimes all we have is faith as small as a mustard seed and that is what must get us through to the next moment.

He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20
